    • Bob does not like the wolf pups from the Alpha and Omega sequels disobeying their parents, nor them talking about things they wouldn't know about. So much so that in the Dino Digs review, he just kept a counter of all the human things the characters talk about that they wouldn't know about.

    Bobsheaux: Make up your mind, DC!
  • Clark Kenting: He points out the Clay Boys in his "Gumby" review that they could've morph into something else so Gumby and his friends won't notice them, but all you need is to wear a hat and no one can spot the difference.
    Bobsheaux (wearing a different hat): Don't recognize now, can ya?

  • Filler: His main issue with Larry Semon's adaptation of Oz.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks: He states in his Tappy Toes review that he never like Happy Feet, as he feels like it's penguins reenacting American Idol. Luckily, he hasn't gotten too much backlash for his opinion.
    • In-universe in his "Phantom of the Opera" review where Bob states he doesn't care for Michael Crawford as the Phantom. He states that he sounds like a operatic version of Professor Frink.
  • Hell Is That Noise: How he reacted to the beginning music from "A Christmas Story 2".

  • Hypocritical Humor: A very subtle example in his review of The Impossible Elephant
    Bobsheaux: Now the movie's throwing comic book reviews at us? How's that supposed to be entertaining?!
  • I Got a Rock: After seeing Tuffy, he begins searching for one immediately.
    Bobsheaux: Wait a minute, here's one! (kills Tuffy)
  • It Is Pronounced Tro PAY: For a while, fans have wondered how "Bobsheaux" is pronounced. He later explained in his Ringing Bell review that it's pronounced "Bob Show".
  • It Makes Sense in Context
    Bobsheaux: Okay, so this Happy Feet knockoff is ripping off The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Makes Sense! (shrugs)
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: If a movie is bad enough, he'll pull out a bottle of alcohol and drink on screen. Popular examples of this happening are in his reviews of Tentacolino and Alpha and Omega 3: The Great Wolf Games.
    • It returns again in Romeo and Juliet: Sealed with a Kiss when he discovers that it's a stealth animated Titanic movie.
    Bobsheaux: As long as Captain Morgan keeps making more iced tea, I'll be just fine.

  • Kick the Dog: Parodied this as the lesson from his "Gumby: The Movie" review.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: In some of his reviews, his pet cats often show onscreen.
  • Language Barrier: Despite liking the movie, his main issue with Roadside Romeo is that most of the characters speak in Hindi instead of English. Granted, he knows it's a film from India, but what's the point of speaking both languages if viewers can't undderstand what they're saying? He had to buy the actual copy of the film so he can read the subtitles.
  • Let's Watch: He did so far Foodfight, Life's a Jungle: Africa's Most Wanted, Jock the Hero Dog, and The Adventures of the American Rabbit.

  • Logic Bomb: According to Bob, The animated Titanic movie and Tentacolino fall into one of these. The first movie shows the mice making it safely to New York, while the second movie shows that none of them made it home after they were trapped in Atlantis and not allowed to leave, making the first one impossible to have happened. Since the first one did not occur, neither did the events of the second, both movies disappearing entirely.

  • No Pronunciation Guide:
    • He did this in his "El Arca" review when pronounces Panty's named "Panthy". He later points out that he called her that, mostly due to the Bombay's lisp.
    • He also did this when he pronounce Ra's Al-Ghul's name "Ray" in his Cheetahmen review, though you can't blame him since his name being pronounced is a long debate.
  • Not So Different: His views on Fisk Black, claiming despite JumpingTheShark as an action hero and having a wife and kids over the years, he's still an average guy who deals problem like everyone else.
  • Off Model: Mentioned this a few times, such as "Youngblood".
  • Oh Crap!: He has this reaction when he discovers that he's out of alcohol during his Spooky Buddies review.
  • Rule 34: In "Tentacolino", he tried looking for R34 fanart on Smiles and his love interest. Surprisingly, he couldn't find anything, and was thankful this didn't existed.
  • Running Gag: His hatred for Michael Bay's Transformers films.
    • His usage of "Great Continuity!" from Phelous when something is contrasting the continuity of the comic or book he's reviewing.
    • The tendency for him to find himself running into animated Titanic movies or something very much like them.
  • The Scrappy: In-Universe. He treats Tuffy, the Nibbles character in Tom and Jerry and the Wizard of Oz, like this. He views the little gray mouse as a random fanfic inserted character who steals all of the thunder from the two title characters and acts like a total Purity Sue.

  • The Swear Jar: Did this briefly when Richard Firmin was about to say "shit", but instead said "gibberish".
  • Talk Like a Pirate: Bob talks like that when he plays as Victor.
  • They Just Didn't Care: His primary complaint about Alpha And Omega 3: The Great Wolf Games, every aspect of the movie clearly showing no care was given at any point in production. He is all the more enraged that the moral of the movie was to be the best you can be when the movie certainly did not.invoked
  • Toon Physics: In his Tom & Jerry review, Auntie Em tells the two that they need to protect Dorothy. Bob thinks it doesn't make sense, since they lived in a world of cartoon physics where they can survive almost anything without lasting harm.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Bob states in his Batman/Superman #1 review that Batman is an unemphatic jerk.
  • Unexplained Accent: Bob doesn't know why the chimpanzee from "The True Story of Puss 'n Boots" has a Jamaican accent.
